With the release of Adium Message style – Renkoo, v2.3, the graphical assets of Renkoo are now available open sourced under the BSD and AFL license.
What does that mean? According to Torrey, “relatively soon I will be making a page that hosts not only the open source theme assets but also the source Photoshop files I used to create the theme. More details to follow! :)”

More fun facts:
- Renkoo is currently the #1 Adium message style.
- The style is now used in the Gizmo Project application.
- It will ship with the soon-to-be-released Adium 1.0.
Just to make it clear: Renkoo did not rip off Adium’s look-and-feel… We shared our look and feel with them. 🙂

Our designer, Torrey Rice, has created an Adium extension
that combines the very stylish Renkoo conversation chat bubble style, with the Dojo Toolkit fade-in transition. Feedback has been overwelmingly favorable, with over 1000 downloads in the first week, and comments such as “This is the best message list style ever“.
Adium, the popular instant messaging client available to Mac users, provides a mechanism for third party developers to contribute custom chat interfaces. This is the first time that someone has embedded something like Dojo Toolkit inside one of these extensions. This additional power allowed Torrey to make what we consider to be the best looking IM interface there is. And it of course matches the style used when chatting inside Renkoo.
- have a Mac
- use Adium for instant messaging
then you should try out the Renkoo Adium extension. Did we mention that we think it looks amazing?
